    PJ882-HH Funny Noise

    I pulled up the manual and got the size it's 5/16" x 3/8" so it looks like it's from somewhere inside. I checked every set screw location and they all have one so not sure where it came from. My nose is running like a fire hydrant so i'm not really keen on digging further to find it. It could be from something else as well this isn't the only tool in my shop with set screws. I've also used this size for other things in the shop so yeah....

    There is a set screw in the hand wheel that you adjust your fence with, at least there is on my C60

    Harvesting a Nice Black Walnut Tree

    Spent some time today moving logs. Logs lined up for bandsaw mill scheduled on Mon. Looks like rain will cause us to reschedule. Here's the lineup; First 3 logs are Paulownia, 14"-12"; Next 3 are Walnut, 26" at widest, secondary logs at 18-20"; % Whiter Oak logs, average size around 22-24:, widest part of butt log 28" Smaller Walnut, Paulownia, and 2 good sized White Oak logs in the background, hoping for good weather.

    This rings a bell. Wasn't there someone a couple of years back that had a Grizz with never ending problems of the same nature? Maybe Eric? Are the pulleys steel or cast mystery metal? I they're not steel, it might be worth it to get steel pulleys. They are better in every way & not that expensive.

    Lifting cabinet saw solo

    Should finish up assembly on the saw tonight. Probably won't get the dust collection or outfeed table until the weekend. It's been very smooth so far. The only even slightly challenging thing to do solo has been getting the rail brackets co-planer with the table by myself. A couple Bessy clamps took care of that task.

    Cutting Homosote

    You can cross cut Hardee siding boards the same way in a pinch with a utility knife. A couple of scribes and it pops clean.

    Figured out the noise. I knew it was a bad sign with it stopped. The set pin backed out on the top pulley and the key fell out of the keyway. Got that fixed trouble is now there is a set screw that i found on the floor and i don't know where it came from. both pulley's have both of their set screws.

    Cutting Homosote

    It cuts fine on a table saw but is messy as folks have mentioned. I used a sheet of it to make some bench beams and found that cutting it with a utility knife and a straight edge was preferable, though. It's pretty bendy.

    That looks identical to the Ryobi I bought about 30 years ago and still use. David

    End Grain Cutting Boards

    Got the four boards finished yesterday, just in time for leaving to head home for the holidays. Ran a 1/4” roundover around all the edges and put a recess on either end for hand holds. Finished them off with a mineral oil-beeswax mixture. Pretty happy with the result of the project and expect that my family will be too.

    Cutting Homosote

    I don't think it would hurt the blade at all, but the dust from that stuff seems even worse than MDF dust for getting everywhere & sticking to everything.

    Yep, a good part of it anyway.

    Cut the bottom grout line & remove top to sand is what I would do. White Lexcel cleans up with mineral spirits, but I would mask off the refinished oak before I caulked it to the tile.

    Try whatever you decide on a small area first. Good luck.

    Cutting Homosote

    I milled it just fine on a table saw. That said, job site saw and gentle breeze, with a dust mask to boot.

    I think you right and i believe Ross posted something about using strong alkaline chemicals to "stain" the tanins in oak. I believe he used powdered lye drain cleaner. Isn't grout basically a portland cement?

    Grout haze is just cleaned off with plain water, but the grout residue makes it alkaline, so that's probably what's messed with the oak.

    I think the solution they use to clean "grout haze" off newly installed tile is acidic. I don't know what the implications of that are for your stains - maybe someone else here knows.

    Grizzly Sale on Desktop Spindle Sander

    I bought one of these when I was outfitting my shop but never opened it. I took it back to Grizzly and went with their bigger floor model since I had plenty of room for it. I have no knowledge as to the quality of their table top machine. I'd say that if someone bought one and the table was out of whack they could return it for a replacement. Rick, is there no adjustment for the table or spindle?

    Kent, I have the grizzly one that's a knock off of the popular Ridgid OS. It's a decent machine, however the table isn't 90* to the spindle, it's off by about 2*. I just do a flip on the part I'm sanding and it's good to go.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Good suggestions there. A few days had gone by when those pictures were taken. It has been almost a week since the pictures were taken. It would not be too difficult to un-install the counter tops to do the sanding. I think I may do that.

    I agree give it time to dry but i doubt that's the whole story. My second thought would be to rent a hardwood flooring edger. I'd try the ROS to start but if it's slow going and you start to put some waves in the surface I'd go for a more aggressive approach. The hardwood flooring edgers work FAST and their rental isn't all that expensive might save you the cost in time and frustration.
